I think that's occurring because you're pre-upgrade version was from before Brother's move from /usr/local to /opt. I've uploaded a new tarball that should avoid this for future upgraders from pre-0.2.3, and, dk0r, any files in /usr/local/Brother/sane/script which may be lingering you can safely delete.

Done, I'll maintain it for now.

I'm not able to maintain this package any longer, so I orphaned it. Feel free to take it over.

So makepkg wants a package() function in PKGBUILD's these days, and since my previous patch I made a couple of other minor improvements too. I've put everything together in a git repo here: .

You may get an error when installing the package built from the above due to there already being a /usr/bin/brscan-skey in your filesystem. This is because the previous brscan-skey.install file created that symlink after the package was built (one of the reasons I've redone my patch), so just do `# rm /usr/bin/brscan-skey' and retry.

(If you don't know what to do with a git repo, its simple: just run `git clone'. This will create a brscan-skey folder in your current directory which is then ready for you to run makepkg in.)

New Version 0.2.4 : I updated 12qu's patch which works well for me

Package does not install properly after Brother's upgrade to version 0.2.3. This patch fixed things for me.

You can omit the extraction steps by fetching the rpm instead.
Makepkg will use bsdtar to automatically extract the rpm.
